Which limitations do I have with cryptocurrencies?

Last updated: August 14, 2021

While an Estonian private limited liability company is allowed to receive payments and make purchases in cryptocurrencies, the related accounting is much more complex to handle. Since customised solutions are in conflict with our desire to standardise and automate processes, we have currently set some limitations regarding to transactions with cryptocurrencies.

Currently, Xolo takes the following view on our customers' business transactions with cryptocurrencies:

  • If your company has earned some profit from providing professional or digital services (i.e. the core business) and would like to invest the spare resources to cryptocurrencies (buying-selling cryptocurrencies), it's accepted. However, if buying-selling cryptocurrencies becomes the core business of the company, we cannot support it anymore, since it requires an activity license in Estonia.

  • You cannot collect your sales revenue or pay for services/products in cryptocurrency.

  • If your company wants to use its resources to mine a cryptocurrency, we don't support it.

  • If your company wants to initiate a (public) offering of tokens (ICO) or accept donations, we don't support it.

  • If your company wants to provide a virtual currency exchange service or a wallet service, or become a trading hub/payment gateway itself, we don't support it.

Before you start investing, please make sure your bank supports payments related to purchasing cryptocurrencies.
